The French Government has dropped charges against Rabbi Korff, co-chairman of the American Political Action Committee for Palestine, who was arrested on September 7 for his alleged plans to “bomb” London with leaflets attacking British actions in the Holy Land, the State Department reported today.

State Department officials said the Embassy at Paris is trying to help Rabbi Korff return to his home in New York as soon as possible. They added that the Department has never been informed by the French Government regarding the exact charges against Rabbi Korff. He has been free on bond since October 4.
